Good times at the DC 4.4 SC Release party
Oh no! The out of town visitor beat me to posting the follow up blog entry on our party. Damn you Jonathan! Stop making me look like a slacker!
So unfortunately this past week or two I’ve been rather bogged down with working on my master’s degree and working my day job and brewing beer, etc. But on the note of beer we had some very good ones at our 4.4 SC party and I think everyone that came had a nice time.
We started out at Fuddruckers for some good American style burgers and fries (with drunken locals who swore they knew Scottish people that they’d never seen in their lives) and lots of KDE talk. I had the opportunity to show off some new features to some of the Kubuntu LoCo folks. I think we’d have had a better turn out but unfortunately due to SNOWPACALYPSE 2010 in DC we had lots of people whose cars were too buried to make it to the party. The other bad news was that I forgot all the sweet KDE swag that Claudia sent me. Though really that was mostly for the CALUG talk I was going to give this month (which was canceled and subsequently moved to next month due to the storms). Despite the circumstances we still made Jonathan give a really in depth speech about KDE and Kubuntu before we moved on to the bar. Ask him about it…it was quite grueling and official.
After that we headed off to Victoria Gastropub where many more fancy beers were to be had. We lost half of our Fuddruckers crew on the way there due to age limits and what not, but fortunately we picked up another 6 people after we arrived so all in all we had a pretty steady group of 10-12 people the entire evening. 2 of those folks were completely new to KDE so I gave them my sales pitch about how absolutely amazing it was. Here are a couple more photos from the evening:
